Beaufort Academy sophomores Brandon Trapp and Lily Melville have been named the recipients of the 2019 T. Reynolds Robinson Scholarship.
This scholarship has been awarded annually at Beaufort Academy since 1989 – the year Reynolds died tragically at the young age of 13. Reynolds was a student at Beaufort Academy.
The scholarship is awarded by his family in celebration and remembrance of Reynolds.
Recipients must possess many of the qualities that people loved about Reynolds, including strong leadership and athletic ability and the respect and friendship of classmates, in addition to maintaining a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.0 during the 7th, 8th and 9th grades.
Awarded to a 10th grader, the scholarship offers $1,500 toward the student’s college education. The awards were presented by Reynolds’ brother, Clark Robinson (BA ‘87), and his father, Bill Robinson.
